  • Folio 15r to 41v
Date of creation (physical object)
Date 1676-<1706
  • based on research
Specification The last registration in the 'stoelenboek' dates from 1703. In the later 'stoelenboeken' of Van Tetroode and of Van Sasse van Ysselt in 1704, 1705 and 1706 nobody was registered. Therefore the second scribe must have stopped writing between 1703 and 1707.
Date of creation (contents of the text)
Date 1676
  • based on research
Specification The convocation form in this same manuscript for the guild-meal on 11 and 12 January 1677 for the members living outside Haarlem is dated 23 December 1676. From the watermark it can therefore be concluded that the paper was three years old when the first scribe started writing. (See Jaspers, p. 12)
